“thermalscape #031″ Satoshi MIYATA 2011 Thermal paper
Fri. 6 May – Sat. 28 May 2011
Reception Party : Sat. 7 May 18:00-20:00
Artists : Tomohiro Inaba, Satoshi Miyata
A duo-exhibition of two young artists -”matter” – will be held at CASHI.
Tomohiro Inaba, one of the sculptors, is a young artist who exhibited a deer whose whole height exceeds 2 meters created only with iron wire in the exhibit entitled “100 degrees Fahrenheit vol.2″ in June 2010 at CASHI. The sculpture looks as if freely woven with hard iron wire every thin piece of which even creates space. Inaba, finished a graduate school last spring, is a highly promising artist with his strong commitment to the art of sculpture.
Satoshi Miyata displayed his two-dimensional work, pieces of paper that contains household garbage and daily goods in specially-made frames in “Straight grass” in January, 2010. He consistently uses daily products for material.
His work, created through meticulously calculated process based on the nature of those materials, wears the atmosphere that, in a way, eliminates humanity.
He always seeks a creative method where existing methods are dissected and reorganized. His viewpoints betray us in a positive way.
They both pursue sophisticated colors and materials to amplify the attraction of their work as an “article” that exists there. Inaba preferably uses iron as material which starts to rust and decay gradually in the air from the moment when it is created.
Miyata uses thermal paper for his work in this exhibit, a material which cannot eternally remain the same either. His work may look totally different in as early as next year just like a piece of sales slip left on a car dashboard changing its appearance.
Because we are surrounded by a flood of colors and information saturation in our society, we tend to have an illusion that everything will stay there and remain the same for good. Their work, as sturdy and fragile as residual image, will tell us how precious it is to share every moment in which we live.
